Appletaffy my earth pony! She's a distant cousin of Applejack from the small town Three Apples in the North. She is based pretty heavily on Jessica Riggs from Prancer in that she lives on an apple farm with her father and brother, her mother passed away leaving the family on hard times, and she has a snotty (yet lovable), disbelieving best friend. She thought her family didn't want her anymore, so she ran away into a blizzard. Her father found her and nursed her back to health, and realizing how selfish she was, she offered to move to Ponyville to earn money for the family and be less of a burden on them. She now lives with Applejack and co. and works hard on the farm bucking apples on weekends, and has a second job at Sugar Cube Corner making all sorts of yummy apple treats like her mother used to do! Her resolve earned her cutie mark, three appletaffy bonbons.
EDIT: I added some shading to her eyes to make it more like those in the show!
